I love this first bit of news in Las Vegas so much that I’m skipping the intro. If you’re not aware, I’ve had a crush on the Cosmopolitan for years. You’ll see in my vacation roundup when it’s posted. Here’s another reason to love the home to my favorite bar on the Vegas Strip.
Sometimes there’s big news in Las Vegas. Then again, sometimes there’s little news in Las Vegas (remember last week?). This week is sort of in the middle. There’s a lot of interesting Vegas News but nothing is a big bombshell. In order to get to everything, we’ll take a brief look at most of the news.
My week of vacation on the Vegas Strip was a great time and personally enlightening. I’ll just touch on a couple of newsy items today and will dive deeper with some kind of trip report. Coincidentally, there wasn’t much news while I was taking a break. (Well, except for a Vegas Earthquake!)
I believe I read on twitter that Caesars and the Cosmopolitan would be sold last week. Well, they weren’t and there isn’t too much exciting news. Have no fear, Resorts World is here to save the day! (“Vegas Looking Back”) We don’t have more news but my personal twitter had some information that people enjoyed.
No introduction this week. We’re going right into the strange week in “As Caesars Turns.” On Thursday night the New York Post reported that “Icahn, Caesars reject too-low takeover offer from Eldorado Resorts.” While the article mentions that the deal is still being negotiated and close to happening, the headline was slightly misleading.
Here’s a fun new promo from Las Vegas. The first Circa Sports sports book opened on Saturday at the Golden Gate. The next will Circa Sports sports book will open at The D in a couple of weeks and the big sports book at Circa should open in December 2020.
We’re in the middle of a long Memorial Day Weekend so I’m just going to hop right to the Vegas News. This week I’ll serve most of the news Quick Hits style so you can grab the news interested and head out for some fun.
The news from Las Vegas and casinos never seems to stop. On Friday afternoon I headed out to Cleaver for a delicious half-price steak for Happy Hour and news was still developing. It wasn’t until I returned home that I really caught up.

I had the 13, 8, 5 horses boxed with a horse that might still be running. It’s nicer to get 2nd through 4th place finishers correct but that doesn’t pay the bills. Hopefully, your Kentucky Derby was more fruitful. I’m still taking a wait and see approach to evaluating how the MGM 2020 layoffs would impact the experience in Las Vegas.
